Charles I have been studying Chemistry since 1993 when I declared it my major. Since then I have obtained a doctorate in the subject and have been working as a professional chemist in research and development. I may actually like teaching Chemistry more than I like practicing it and that is saying a lot! Looking forward to working with students at all levels!

Annie ...to complete the prerequisites for medical school. I completed chemistry, physics, and biology at Northwestern and organic chemistry at Harvard. Following these courses I took a job as a medical editor for a pediatric surgical practice.

Diane I love to learn and expand my knowledge. I enjoy the history channel and documentaries. ... Give them more positive encouragement....

David ...Prep. I tailor my teaching style to the strengths of my student and will sit patiently until each concept is mastered. To those enduring difficult Econ or LSAT classes, I can relate. Many of these subjects were difficult for me as well and I hope to share the techniques I developed to master the material with you. When I'm not tutoring, I trade energy derivatives in Manhattan. Fortunately, my flexible hours allow me to meet...

Deven ...on Control Systems and Mathematical Modeling. I have worked with graduate students, collegiate students, and school students. Tutoring is one of the most satisfying ways I spend my time. I value and enjoy building a rapport with each student so I can challenge him or her to think critically about a given problem. On the flip side, I continually remind my students to critique and to question what I am presenting, especially if a point...

Beth ...effective way of learning. What is teaching? For me, it's helping another person to learn. The key to teaching is communication. I learn from all my students; every year, they ask questions no one has ever asked before, and give me insights into what makes learning difficult for them. Working with students always brings surprises - for them and for me. I want my students to become better learners and gain confidence in their ability...

Michael ...industry for several years as a researcher, but I've found that the most satisfying moments have come when I am able to share my expertise with someone else. Similarly, I very much enjoyed the four semesters in the graduate school when I was a teaching assistant. It gave me the opportunity to work with students and help them develop an understanding for the subject. These are the primary reasons that I have decided to go...

Tyler ...micro-biology labs, the latter of which I have a published paper for my work. While at Marquette I also tutored. I think it is extremely important for tutors to be able to help their students learn in what ever way best allows for them to understand the material. Every student has a different learning type and it is up to their tutor to figure out what that type is and apply teaching styles that will...
